New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has dared Delhi state BJP President Manoj Tiwari to come good on his promise of donating Rs 1.11 lakh to the AAP if the Delhi government passed the proposal to construct Phase IV of the Delhi Metro.

In October, Tiwari had dared the Delhi government to pass the project. If they did, he claimed, he would donate the amount to the AAP.

“We hope Manoj Tiwari Ji will not turn his promise into a jumla (false promise) like the BJP and Narendra Modi Ji. Posted below is a link, using which you can donate money (to the Aam Aadmi Party). By donating, you will not only fulfil your promise but also become a contributor to Digital India,” the official AAP page tweeted in Hindi, along with a link to the donation portal.

AAP spokesperson Akshay Marathe also posted the link to the donation portal, taking a dig at Tiwari. “Hi @ManojTiwariMP please donate here,” he said.

The AAP government on Wednesday approved the much-awaited Phase-IV project of the Delhi Metro, which Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said would boost public transport and reduce pollution.

In a first, the Delhi government has also decided to construct elevated roads under three metro corridors — Rithala-Bawana-Narela, Janakpuri West-R K Ashram and Mukundpur-Maujpur — of the total six under the 103-km-long Phase IV.

In October, Tiwari had tweeted, “Arvind Kejriwal ji, do not punish people who have elected you. Delhi gave 67 out of 70 seats to Kejriwal, but he says he will not give them Metro. Take your donation. I will give you Rs 1,11,100 that I earn through singing if you clear Phase IV Metro.”

Tiwari and the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP have been at loggerheads for the last few months, with the last big confrontation in November during the inauguration of the Signature Bridge near Wazirabad. During the inauguration, Tiwari had stormed the venue, upset at the fact that as a Member of Parliament from Delhi, he had not been invited.
